Help Me Understand-crd  Hank Williams

[A]A  little girl prayed at the [D]close of the da[A]y,
[A]Cause her daddy had gone far a[E]way,
O[A]n her little face was a [D]look of des[A]pair,
I s[A]tood there and listened, and I[E] heard this
My m[D]ommie says daddy has brought us to sh[A]ame
A[D]nd I'm never no more to me[A]ntion his na[E]me
[A]Lord take me and lead me and ho[D]ld to my
[A]Oh heavenly Father h[E]elp me understa[A]nd
You know friends I wonder--
Just how many homes are broken tonight
And just how many tears are shed
By some little word of anger
That never should have been said
I'd like to tell you a story
Of a family I once knew.
We'll call them Mary and William
And their little daughter Sue
Now Mary was just a plain mother
And Bill was just a usual dad
And they had their little family quarrels
(like everybody else)
But neither one really got mad
Then one day something happened
It was nothing of course
But one word led to another
And the last word led to a divorce
Now here were two grown up people
Who failed to use common sense
They strengthened their own selfish pride
At little Sue's expense
You know she didn’t ask to be brought to
this world
To drift from pillar to post
But a divorce never stops to consider
The ones it hurts the most
There’d be a lot more honest loving
In this wicked ole world today
If just a few parted parents
Could hear little Sue say
[A]Take me and lead me and[D] hold to my han[A]d
[A]Oh heavenly Father, h[E]elp me underst[A]and
